hmmmm...

Hey guys, I am in need of some clarification. I joined my school's Japanese beginners class after they learned about particles etc so whenever I do my writing tasks, I'm always getting them wrong. Could someone tell me what each particle does and can do, depending on each sentence? It's halfway through the year and though I have some knowledge of the sentence structures etc, I'm still getting some particles wrong.
Not sure when I'll get a reply, but I wait for the day when my saviour will come and guide me down the path of a good mark. :DD

Mainly I would say
に after a place when you are going to the place (I am going to the beach)
で after a place, but place of action (I will swim at the beach)
を after object
が after second subject also with potential form and some grammar patterns
は after subject (only use one in sentence)
の possession (like 's) also can show relationship between things

うみりんごたべます。
(My mum ate an apple at the beach)

This was just a really quick summary and is not fully comprehensive, but I hope it helps you get a rough idea! ;D

wow! I didn't expect a reply this early since this forum hadn't been posted in for a while so really, thank you. I really appreciate it and I hope you have a wonderful night OwlBird83 :DD

Also, quick question. What about double particles like には? I've seen it a few times in texts and I always brushed pass it. :DD

For には it's used at the start after a place and means 'in', eg 'In japan...'
You would use には when the sentence ends in あります。or います。
For example:
まちにはみせがあります。In town, there are shops.
日本にはしかがいます。In japan there are deer./There are deer in Japan.

However you don't always use it after a place. For example:
日本おもしろいくにです。Japan is an interesting country.
そのまちとても大きいです。That town is very big.
